This way and that                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              The shadows have been running all day                                                                                        On the verge of being something more than darkness                                                                 While outside it rains glass beads of blue water                                                                            Wait awhile and the wind will blow inland from the Atlantic 's storm tossed skies                                                      And dance through the wind chimes on the back porch                                                                    Wait awhile and the evening star will rise to compliment a flashing thunderbolt                                                                                             And we can go out and dream together                                                                                                    Of new beginnings and places we've never been                                                                        Wait awhile and one of us will say come away with me                                                              And the other one will follow                                                                                                              As love struggles against the odds                                                                                                     Not to be disfigured by the test of time                                                                                         The  darkening skies  splashed with gray thunder clouds now fades a like watercolor                                        Into the shadows of the of the night.

    yeah...real love does stand the test of time, in that being sentimental, we will always hold a special place in our hearts for those whom have passed this way. But,...the one thing in this world we can be certain of...is change. love and hugs, Catie :)
